    HI everyone I am getting ready to build myself a PC from scratch it is going to be my first one I have built. I wanted to know if a 1000MHz FSB Hyper Transport would be a better mobo to buy than a 2000MHz FSB without Hyper Transport? If someone could give me any info about this I would greatly appreciate it. Also whats a good brand of a mobo to actually get?

    Nate -- I haven't researched the Hyper Transport FSB's yet; but, the following mobo manufacturers are highly rated. Also, don't forget to choose your Case/PSU too; that's almost as thrilling as buying a car. What case/psu did you decide on?? Depending on that will determine the form factor for your motherboard. Most folks are going with ATX Form factor in a desktop computer nowadays.....

    Motherboard Vendors:

    AOPEN
    ASUS (my favorite!)
    ABIT
    DFI
    FOXCONN
    GIGABYTE
    MSI
